ESPN analyst Jon Gruden, on a MNF conference call, offered his take on Geno Smith's culpability in the recent altercation and the state of the Jets' QB situation: "I don't know the exactness of his role in what happened, but there's a lot of smoke. Wherever there's smoke, there's fire." Gruden believes Ryan Fitzpatrick is "a good bridge to the future," adding "it's too early to give up on (Smith)."

Jets in the market for a tight end?

With Jace Amaro (shoulder) now out for the season, the Jets have Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Davis as their top two tight ends. Could they be looking for another piece as final cuts approach? Wednesday NFL storylines

Jets lose TE Amaro for season with torn labrum (2:17)

Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is done playing football for a while. He won't play in the final preseason game, according to Todd Bowles, who doesn't want to risk injury. Because he faces a four-game drug suspension, Richardson's next game is Oct. 18, if then. There's a chance his suspension could be increased due to an arrest in mid-July. He didn't want to speak to reporters after Tuesday's practice.

Sounds like Matt Flynn will start at quarterback for the Jets on Thursday against the Eagles. With Geno Smith (jaw) injured, they want an experienced backup for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Flynn is the favorite, but he needs PT. Todd Bowles: "You're probably going to see a lot of Matt and we're going to try to see some of Josh (Johnson) as well. We'll try to focus on those two guys." Bowles was undecided on whether to play rookie Bryce Petty in the finale.

Jets lose TE Amaro for season with torn labrum

The New York Jets' tight end position took another hit Tuesday, as Jace Amaro, a second-round draft pick in 2014, was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn labrum.

TE Jace Amaro has a torn labrum and will have surgery, the Jets announced. He will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. The former second-round pick, hurt in the first preseason game, was expected to be used as an H-back Rex Ryan will be disappointed.

Encouraging news for Jets WR/PR Jeremy Kerley (concussion): Upgraded to red (no contact) jersey. Doing some light positional work. Rookie DE Leonard Williams (knee) sitting for the second straight day. TE Jace Amaro (shoulder) still sidelined. Week 1 in jeopardy for Amaro.

QB moves made by the Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets mean three of the five lowest-rated players in the 2015 QB Tiers project lost their jobs before the season. The Jets' decision was made for them, but in my view, it was only a matter of time before Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Geno Smith. Via ESPN Insider: http://es.pn/1GyFNCT

Jets RB Stevan Ridley, who underwent major knee surgery last November, is expected to begin the season on the PUP list. They have three capable backs in Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Zac Stacy, so there's no need to rush Ridley. Todd Bowles also left open the possibility of CB Dee Milliner (wrist surgery) beginning the season on short-term IR. That would help with roster management.

Jets No. 1 pick Leonard Williams (knee) is confident he'll face the Browns: "Yeah, I'll definitely be ready by Week 1." He expects to miss 5-7 days. Because of injuries, the Jets may have to play "some" starters on Thursday night, per Todd Bowles. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick won't play. Bowles hasn't decided whether Bryce Petty or Matt Flynn will start at QB.
